Opps,  meant to say the log DOESN'T show an attempt to retrieve,  my bad..

Your log does show that the client is trying to retrieve anything.   May want to have the users do one of or all of the following.

1.  In the account setup,  make sure the client is set to remove msg's from server on download.   This will not really delete the msg from his GW account (unless you have a GWIA class of service to say so) but mark them as "pop deleted" so a subsequent LIST pop command will not list any that are already downloaded.    This is a common pop3 issue with GWIA as it doesn't behave the same as a normal POP3 server

2.   If this still doesn't fix the issue,  then in the account setup,  have him add a :v=2 to the end of the login ID,  ie:  morrisb:v=2    This tells GWIA to give the user a different  POP3 'view' in the mailbox
